Moonta Gallery of the Arts – Enigma Exhibition
Ruth Turner: Artist Statement I’m interested in the ordinary and the common place.  Flowers, a corner in a room, a table set for tea, a garden setting.  Beauty for the sake of beauty.  In all it is the aesthetic that counts.  Conceptual in that it connotes intimacy, space and feeling which promotes a sensory emotive experience which asks nothing more of us than to indulge our senses.  With imagery sourced from books, magazines and my own photos then worked over in photo shop my primary aim is to explore the relationship between paint qualities and colour, light, shape and form. Guided by memory, instinct, and my imagination forms both organic and inanimate run into one another.  Colours translucent, opaque and iridescent.  Muddled, chaotic and with a quality I like to think engages the viewer in a quiet moment of reflection.  Paintwork that calls attention to the application of the paint itself, both expressive with accidental mark making as well as disciplined and coordinated.  This is what is fundamental to my practice.
